Diamonds in the Ruff CSRA, Inc. is a 501(c)3, non proft
organization founded in January 2011, operating under the Happy Tails
umbrella. The mission is to raise funds to help local rescue groups with
operating costs, to promote the importance of spay/neuter of companion
animals and to educate the community in all aspects of animal welfare.
This group rescues, fosters and adopts adult cats and
kittens. The majority of these cats are the offspring of feral
cats. There is an estimated 40,000 homeless, free roaming cats in
Columbia County alone. There is another 30,000 of the same in
Richmond County. They practice TNR (trap/neuter/release) in the feral
community. This is the practice of trapping a feral cat, sterilizing and
releasing back into its colony and manage that colony by monitoring and feeding
the cats for life. This is a common practice nationwide. So far,
since last fall, they have spayed/neutered, adopted close to 100 cats.
There are many opportunities for volunteers in the
organization. A few are:
- Attending adoptions at Peto in Evans held on
Saturdays from 11-3. This would include set up and break down of crates,
tables, etc. Helping with paperwork as kittens are adopted; cleaning
cages; feeding, etc.
- Working at the "kitten orphanage"
including cleaning, feeding, playing and visiting with the kittens.
- Helping with fundraisers.
- Website maintenance.
- Marketing/Computer Skills
- Photographing cats/kittens for website
The most important thing that someone can do is to foster
a homeless animal. Fostering is a lifeline for a homeless dog or cat and
is extremely rewarding.

FUNDRAISING - SPECIAL PROJECTS
Volunteers are needed to participate on various Fund raising Committees
as well as on the day of the events. Committee volunteers help secure sponsors
and serve on various sub-committees (i.e., publicity committee, program
committee, ad committee, etc.).
In addition to our in-house special events, the Foundation makes wishes
come true through External Events that are coordinated by individuals or
groups and benefit the Foundation. This volunteer opportunity allows you
the autonomy of managing an event with the support of the Make-A-Wish staff.
External events are planned at community clubs, places of employment, or
through peer groups and are licensed by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Each
event provides an opportunity for our volunteers to have a great time while
making a much-needed contribution of time and effort on behalf of the Make-A-Wish
In this capacity, volunteers assist with all the workings of the office
during normal business hours. The support would include word processing,
data input, special projects, answering phones, bulk mailings, etc. Working

the Make-A-Wish Foundation, as well as get to know our staff and Board of
Directors. We do ask that our office volunteers choose consistent time that
they will volunteer.
We are always looking for volunteers with a knack for writing, public speaking
and graphic design to participate on our Newsletter and Speakers Bureau
Committee. Our Newsletter Committee assists with writing articles, designing
the layout and typesetting the magazine for printing. The members of the

at External Fundraising Events, combined Federal Campaign Kick-Offs, and
other requested speaking events.
Larger groups can also play an important role in the Make-A-Wish Foundation's
mission. Groups can form teams to help raise funds, gather in-kind donations
and become wish volunteers. The teams work together in groups of 6-10 people.
Each person involved is required to go through all the mandatory training,
which can be completed on site at the group's regular meeting place, employer
location or corporate headquarters.
Groups may even get
involved by hosting toy drives to benefit our wish children. Any time we
visit a wish child, one of our wish volunteers takes an initial "icebreaker"
gift. We are constantly in need of toys to refill our stock of these gifts.
